Updating Slackware

floyd - Sun 25 November 2007 - linux, slackware, updates

I have an old router/gateway, still running Slackware 10.0, and since i can't afford more than 5-10min downtime on that box, i'll have to find a reliable way to upgrade "on-the-fly" the os to a newer release.

Afaik, there are a lot of folks that managed to update slack to a new release, using either swaret or slapt-get. Either way, i plan to upgrade to 10.2 first, then try to upgrade to 11.0

Well, slack isn't Debian, and this procedure will surely give me some headaches.
If you have any experience with upgrading Slackware, please leave me a note/comment/whatever.
